First phase of the project will be delivered in October
Hammerson has announced that it is planning a £2m upgrade to New Street Mall, as part of a phased project which will include significant internal upgrades and result in ‘a more vibrant and engaging’ entrance to its flagship destination Grand Central, the retail and F&B destination integrated with Birmingham New Street.
The first phase of the project will be delivered in October, and focuses on upgrades to the internal walkway of New Street Mall, including new seating, pilaster treatments to revitalise the destination’s store fronts, and an innovative light installation.
Phase two is projected to complete in Spring 2020, and will involve an upgrade to the double-height atrium entrance at Grand Central, to enhance the visibility of the destination.
Conrad Bacon, portfolio director, said: “This £2m project will transform New Street Mall and Grand Central, creating a fresh and dynamic entrance, with an eye-catching double-height atrium.”
